Jyoti Karmali shares with us a recipe that is ideal for the season - it's made out of fresh dates! Jyoti tells us that she gets the dates from the trees in her house. "It all started with not knowing what to do with so many dates that we got during summer from the trees," she tells us. Here's the signature pudding of the Karmali household, that's a firm favourite with everyone. And Jyoti shares another quick date recipe with us too.
